Snagging a marriage proposal for her client while on an
all-expenses-paid vacation should be a simple job for Ciel Halligan,
aura adaptor extraordinaire. A kind of human chameleon, she's able to
take on her clients' appearances and slip seamlessly into their lives,
solving any sticky problems they don't want to deal with themselves. No
fuss, no muss. Big paycheck. This particular assignment is pretty
enjoyable...that is, until Ciel's island resort bungalow is blown to
smithereens and her client's about-to-be-fiance is snatched by
modern-day Vikings. For some reason, Ciel begins to suspect that getting
the ring is going to be a tad more difficult than originally
anticipated. Going from romance to rescue requires some serious
gear-shifting, as well as a little backup. Her best friend, Billy, and
Mark, the CIA agent she's been crushing on for years - both skilled
adaptors - step in to help, but their priority is, annoyingly, keeping
her safe. Before long, Ciel is dedicating more energy to escaping their
watchful eyes than she is to saving her client's intended. Suddenly,
facing down a horde of Vikings feels like the least of her problems.
